ok, so that's how you return a thread to the main forum page - it has to be a thread you started, then edit at a later date.

Well, hey, I just wanted to see how that thread below had so many mixed dates - Nov. 14th then replys from Oct. 6 --7th.

It wasn't Arbuthnot, it was Noisecollector killed the forum!
(paraphrasing the last line from King Kong - no offense meant, Noise!)

At least it's 3:00 am in the morning, but this old thread here will still be clogging things for the early risers.

So, to make it interesting, I'll actually continue in the same vein.

I've added an attchment of the strange, short-lived redux of the Anthem of the Sun cover.
The lp was a remix of the original mix, and isn't currently available - almost as rare as the original mix of Aoxomoxoa.

I bought the Anthem remix when it came out, and as far as I remember, it sounded really good.

But the current remaster either in the Golden Road box set or as a digi-pac CD by itself, on Rhino (oooh, scary kids!) is so much more zippy and snarky than the original pressing (or I presume, remix) tho it is the original mix -

why bother getting the remix - unless, well, does someone out there have an opinion or link to the remix?

Anyway, the GD themselves were reportedley not happy about the change of the cover artwork - and it soon reverted back to the good old purple.

Anthem is the Grateful Dead's first compilation of various live shows, the second was Live Dead.

Most of you prefer whole shows, uncut, unedited.

And yet many early live shows do not exist in complete form, as tape reels had to be changed mid-song,
or the recording person was too stoned to notice that the tape leader slapping against the empty reel was not the Worm Ouroboros signalling them from the 11th dimension...

I like them all up to "Go to Heaven," and even that has a wonderful kitsch appeal. "In the Dark," shutter.

I've always loved Aoxomoxoa, especially the photo on the back. Is the lovely Ms. Love REALLY one of those children, or is that just a myth? I've read explanations claiming both.

Anybody know the truth?

Assuming Hank Harrison is there with his daughter - unless perhaps Love was there (if) with her mom...

then, Hank if in the picture, would likely be near the horse... he likes horses.

If I had a full size image of this photo and a magnifying glass, I could spot him if he's there, and that would lend weight that little Courtney is there.

But he never mentioned being on the album cover to me, at a time in 1978 when he was showing me his GD collection of photos, acetates, the Scorpio 45 single and lots of rare stuff.
